Sonia Herbal Beauty Salon owner Sonia Dua spent her formative years in India dreaming about beauty. As she got older, this dream led her to college beauty courses in New Delhi and Bhilai, and later inspired her to open her own salon in India. There, Sonia worked for nearly two decades to beautify clients with unpretentious, time-tested salon techniques.
When she moved to Chicago in 2005, she brought along her many Eastern beauty techniques to complement salon and spa mainstays such as facials, waxing, and mani-pedis. Sonia removes facial hair through the ancient art of threading and decorates skin with intricate, temporary henna tattoos, which are made with plant-based natural dyes rather than chemicals squeezed from Fruit Stripe packaging.
